Doctor Lacquer Polygon Flash + Essie Ballet Slippers


Doctor Lacquer Polygon Flash has a spectacular mix of holographic silver, matte black, and matte white bow, triangle, and hex glitters in a clear base. Normally, I'm not fond of triangle-shaped glitter, but this mix made me fall in love with it. I used 1 coat over Essie Ballet Slippers. The formula was okay. The glitters were hard to get onto the nail so I had to dab them on and carefully manipulate them. It dried bumpy because of the triangle and bow glitters, which don't conform to the nail because they aren't flexible. Despite the formula and stiff glitter, I still say that you should definitely have Polygon Flash in your collection because it's a "neutral" so it'll go with EVERYTHING! (I'm looking forward to wearing it over pastels!)

Essie Ballet Slippers is a whitish pink sheer nude, though it looks like a pale pink in the bottle. It made my nails look very classy, polished, and dainty. I, now, understand why Ballet Slippers is such a popular shade! I used 2 thick coats, finishing with a thin third coat. The formula was fairly typical of many sheer nudes. It was thin and streaky, but, luckily, not very hard to apply and control. The streakiness evened out with each consecutive coat. It dried extremely shiny so I didn't have to use top coat. 

I purchased Polygon Flash from Doctor Lacquer's shop.

Thanks for looking! See you on the other side of the day!
